“For those unfamiliar with Lambert’s artwork, [this book] will serve as an introduction to his art, in the course of providing a readable, insightful, highly personal look at the character of an important region of Alaska at a time when the life he depicts was rapidly changing and about to disappear.”
(Kesler Woodward, Professor of Art, Emeritus at the University of Alaska Fairbanks)
“A remarkable first person narrative. . . . Though he did not consider himself a writer, Lambert's prose captures what he sees with something of the same artistic fluidity and presence found in his paintings.” (Anchorage Daily News)

Ted Lambert is regarded as one of the premier Alaska artists, a true pioneer. Born in 1905, and raised in the Chicago area, Lambert moved to Alaska in 1925 and went to work as a miner near McCarthy. He held several jobs, predominantly working at a copper mine and mushing dogs - first for adventure, and then as a mail carrier. Lambert left Alaska in 1931 to study art for a year at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, then moved to Seattle, where he began a mentorship under Eustace Ziegler, with whom he traveled throughout Alaska and painted. Eventually Lambert settled down in Fairbanks, where he stayed for twenty years and solidified his reputation as a painter and an artist. But in 1960 he disappeared from the remote cabin he was living in at Bristol Bay. No trace of his body was ever found, but among the effects rescued from his last home was a memoir of his early days in Alaska. Published here for the first time, these memoirs reveal Lambert to be a keen and intelligent observer and relay the adventure story of a young man who would become one of Alaska s most important artists.
